The Hampden league will take a settled coaching line-up into next season.
All 10 clubs have retained their leaders after a decision to cancel the 2020 campaign due to coronavirus restrictions denied them a chance to lead their teams.
"We've been trying to have our guys in town or in the vicinity of the area. If you go back a few years, we had a lot of guys away in Melbourne and Geelong, whereas we haven't got many away now which is good in terms of training. It is impossible to have them all, especially where we are, but we have the majority around home now which is good." - Neville Swayn, entering third year
"It is a long-term plan at the club to keep building up at the moment and I am definitely there for next year and hopefully beyond. The commitment from the players was great (during this year's pre-season) and I expect that to be the same. We're all on the same wave length and know what we want the culture to be." - Adam Courtney, entering third year
"By having the experience of last summer, I sort of feel like I'm better prepared for the input I can have in our environment. I also think the players have been able to get a bit more of an understanding of me and my type of coaching." - Gerard FitzGerald, entering second year
"I love coaching and I love our footy club. They're clearly a great team and a great group of people and also, with this season being wiped out, it would have been a pretty big ask to get a new coach to start (in 2021)." - Chris McLaren, entering fifth year
"It was really rewarding last year, taking them from one spot to the other, but now it's trying to consolidate that and get those young guys coming through. It is part of the reason I am really enjoying it and wanted to sign on for another year, to work with young players and their families." - Adam Dowie, entering third year
"The people and the community at Port Fairy, they certainly breathe their football, it's in their blood. They want the club to do well. There are some boys there that want to write a really good script at Port Fairy." - Winis Imbi, entering second year
"I think the playing coach role is a dying art form in a way in the Hampden league standard of country footy. You definitely coach better if you're not playing. It takes a special person to do both really well. You've got to get your own body right as well as everyone else." - Jarrod Holt, entering second year
"We thought we would've had plenty of organic growth with the investment we put into our players over the last 12 months so that was the most disappointing part of not playing this year, not being able to see whether that training and growth translated into on-field performance. I was very optimistic about what we could have done this year. I still hold that optimism for 2021 and whenever we do take to the park. - Mat Battistello, entering third year
"The pre-season we just went through was positive and the players committed well and I was pleased with their commitment to that so I would hope their enthusiasm is similar whenever that kicks off again."- Ben Kenna, entering second year
"We put a lot of work in this year and didn't get off the ground. There's some unfinished business there. We've worked pretty hard to develop the list as well. We're really coaching as a team - it's a shared model - so I was pretty keen for that to continue." - Matt O'Brien, entering fourth year
- 2020 is included in the coaches' tenures
